Your Negotiating Committee (NC) Table Team met with VX Leadership for three days last week in New York. In addition to reaching Tentative Agreements on “Scheduling” and “Bidding,” we also achieved an agreement in principle on Definitions. The topic of conversation then centered around reviewing existing proposals for consistency.

We followed up our productive meetings last week with a two-day meeting this week in San Francisco, where we continued discussing the remaining open articles. This meeting was particularly notable since all but one Member of the Negotiating Committee was in attendance. Your Negotiating Committee reviewed and discussed the Tentative Agreements that we previously reached in addition to the remaining open items. We also held additional discussions with VX Leadership.

 Your TWU VX ITM Negotiating Committee (NC) has just returned from a very productive, three-day bargaining session with Virgin America Leadership. During the session, we engaged in fruitful discussions on important scheduling, bidding, and quality of life issues. We also reached Tentative Agreements in some of these areas and are close to finalizing agreements in the others.

Your Transport Workers Union (TWU) Negotiating Team has just returned from a three-day bargaining session with VX Leadership in Dallas, TX. Our discussions were very productive, and we continue to make progress in many different areas of our historic, first contract. Our next negotiating session will be May 10th through 12th in New York City. In the meantime, we will continue to work on the numerous items that are in discussion, and we anticipate making significant progress at our next meeting.

We would like to issue a special “Thank you!” to our Sisters and Brothers at TWU Local 556, the Union of Southwest Airlines Flight Attendants, who hosted our negotiations in their new headquarters this week. They were amazing hosts who made our Negotiating Team and VX Leadership feel welcome, which contributed to our productive week.
